On July 16, 2013 IGEPN reported that in recent days Reventador volcano showed a significant increase in seismic activity accompanied by emission of a lava that descended down the southwestern flank of the cone on July 13.

Gas and ash emission was reported on July 15 but clouds prevented estimate of its height. IGEPN reports that due to the predominant wind direction there is a possibility that some of the ash emitted from the volcano may cross the mountains and reach the Inter-Andean valley.

According to IGEPN the latest observations and reviews of satellite images imply that there is no presence of ash in the atmosphere in the area of Quito.

The seismic activity at the volcano remains at a high level, and no visual observations are possible due to the presence of cloud cover in the area.

  • On July 14, 2013 strong eruption of Tungurahua was reported.
